Schedule A Telehealth Visit Today

After doing a telehealth visit with a provider if it is determined you need a COVID 19 test your provider will arrange a specific time and location for you to get the test.

You are asked to come into the office masked at a specific time and will be brought back immediately for testing. We ask as soon as the test is complete that you exit the office masked. COVID test results take about 5-9 days to return at this time. Please follow your providers instructions to self quarantine and socially isolate. It is recommended you continue with telehealth appointments every 1-2 days with your provider for clinical monitoring.

If your test is positive for COVID 19 your provider along with the local health department will be in contact with you regarding the next steps including contact tracing and recommendations for you and your family.
